Both my Mother & Father are full Portuguese, born here in the United States.
So when this article appeared in our weekly (yes, weekly!) Newspaper I just had to share!
"Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties.
The first man had married a woman from Spain and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning. He said it took a couple days but on the third day he came home to a clean house and all the dishes were done.
The second man had married a woman from Italy. He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and cooking. On that the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done and he had a huge dinner on the table.
The third man had married a Portuguese woman born here in the United States. He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything and the second day he still didn't see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye. Enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher and telephone a landscaper."
Gotta love those Portuguese Women!!
